Notes from the Field (4.23.18)
Scouting Scratch (7.19.18)

Physical Description: Tall, athletic right-hander with some physical projection remaining in his frame.

Mechanics: Starts on the third base side of the rubber with a wide base. Doesn’t utilize a wind-up and comes set at his chest before utilizing a short arm action behind his back, hiding the ball until late. For the most part comes over the top, but varies his arm slot at times, with some pitches coming from a more high-three quarters arm slot.

Fastball: Generates easy velocity. Sits 92-94 mph and tops out at 95 mph. Maintains velocity well. Shows cut at times when his arm gets out ahead of his delivery and comes across his body, with two-seam action at other times.

Changeup: Split change is his best secondary offering at this stage, showing late, diving action down and out of the zone. Throws the pitch at 85-89 mph. Still an inconsistent pitch.

Slider: Throws his slider 81-85 mph. Average potential but inconsistent. The shape and depth of the pitch varies, with some more vertical when he gets over the ball and others with more tilt when he gets on the side of it.

Career Notes: Signed early in the 2017 international signing period following the club’s ban on international signings. Was almost 20 years old at the time of his signing, which is late for an international free agent. Started the 2018 season in the Lowell rotation.  Missed portion of season with a forearm strain.  Participated in 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Has a long way to go developmentally, but with the early makings of a three-pitch mix and an athletic, projectable frame, he is an intriguing arm in system. Potential to take a step forward.
